Las Vegas Paradise Stake - LDS
1725 Palora Ave
Las Vegas, NV 89169

Forty years ago Paradise Stake, under the able leadership of Ethelyn Peterson, entered into a contract with the Wicks Organ Company of Highland Illinois for building a pipe organ. In October of 1972, Opus 5209 was installed by Dick Mitchell of Salt Lake City, Utah and was ready to play. In December of 1972 Robert Cundick played the dedicatory recital and gave workshops for local organists. This was the first organ that Dick Mitchell and the Wicks Organ Company installed in the area and was the beginning of a long list of instruments to come. In 1992 the relays were updated and additional levels of memory were installed as well as the addition of the independent 8 foot Gedeckt on the Swell.

As it now stands, this 12 rank organ is the oldest instrument in Las Vegas playing in its original location. The Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Guild of Organists had their 25th anniversary celebration at the Paradise Stake in 1998. We would now like to thank and congratulate Ethelyn Peterson, Dick Mitchell, Wicks Organ Company and the members of Paradise Stake on the 40th anniversary of this instrument. May it continue to play for the glory of God and the edification of all who hear it.
